A lot of the people in the area are obsessed with their dogs--on a busy street a couple blocks from my house, there are two (not one, but two) dog bakeries. It was only fitting that I'd do a park scene that included a little dog.
And I'm done with this series for now. I'm off to work on cutting paper for my next projects. Perhaps another portrait? A flower? Another animal piece? We'll see where my inspiration leads me.
